Q: What do you think about Matt Damon because in the film you didn't see each other?
J: I know, we didn't see each other. We had a scene that we shot that they chose not to use in the film, so we did get to have a little bit of dialogue with each other and I got to spend a little bit of time with him in the make-up trailer. He'd be in there sometimes shooting something else that I was doing. I got to talk to him a little bit. He's a terrific guy. Wonderful, intelligent actor and a very good human being too which I really admire and respect.
Q: How do you see mainstream entertainment today? Do you see Bourne Supremacy as an anomaly?
J: A little bit. I think it's set apart a little bit. I think it's very entertaining but I also think it's intelligent and I think Matt somehow has created this character where you really care what happens to this guy and that's not an easy thing to pull off because he could be this super-killer and he just pulls it off. A lot of it is what he brings to it.
Q: Would you be around for a third one?
J: Yeah! If they do it and they want me, definitely, I would be up for it. We'll see how it goes.
